The NYSC may have extended the closure of orientation camp registration exercise from mid-night of 24th October, 2018, till this weekend in some northern states for prospective corps members stranded outside their states of deployment following Kaduna crisis and curfew.
This indication emerged in Katsina, yesterday, shortly after the swearing-in ceremony for 2018 Batch ‘C’ Stream One corps members deployed to Katsina State as no fewer than 400 out of 2300 corps members deployed to the state missed the compulsory registration before the occasion.
The State NYSC Coordinator, Mrs Ramatu Sanda, who confirmed that those affected no doubt had their travel arrangements disrupted by the crisis and curfew in Kaduna State en route Katsina, and would not be turned back at the NYSC orientation camp until perhaps this weekend.
“Some are still on their way but the delay may no doubt be due to the situation in Kaduna State. They will be registered immediately they arrive at the camp because it is not their fault. The crisis in Kaduna prevented some of them from getting to Katsina because of transportation challenges,” said Ramatu.
Declaring the orientation course opened, Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State, represented by his special adviser on youth development, Ibrahim Khalil Aminu, assured that the current administration had put in place comprehensive security machinery aimed at ensuring maximum security in the state.
“For the avoidance of doubt, all traditional rulers, district heads, local government chairmen and security operatives have been given specific instructions on how to secure lives and property of everyone in the state. Considering the security network therefore, all corps members within this camp and environs are safe and need not entertain any fear,” Masari disclosed.
He added: “I will like to remark, with all sense of responsibility, that Katsina is adjudged to be one of the most peaceful states in the country. The people of Katsina are very friendly, peaceful and highly hospitable. Your experience during the service year will corroborate the above statement. The peaceful atmosphere in the state is a fall out of the collective will of the people to be at peace with one another.”
